Do you know what I love about the library? I love that you can take a cookbook you're interested in owning home with you and give it a spin. I hate buying a cookbook only to find that it's not really as great as I hoped it would be, don't you?
While at my local library, Moosewood Restaurant New Classics caught my eye, so I invited it into my kitchen for a little while. In short order, I had marked upwards of fifty recipes I am dying to try!
What's so great about it?
Well, the Moosewood Restaurant is a highly influential restaurant in Ithica, NY, serving delicious, local, seasonal vegetarian fare. And while I'm not a vegetarian, the recipes in this book are completely accessible to vegetarian and omnivore alike. A great many types of cuisine are represented here, but in such a way that even a novice would feel comfortable giving it a try. Yes, there's tofu in there, but there's also an abundance of hearty breakfasts, fresh sandwiches, smoothies and drinks, and decadent desserts.
|Lots of recipes bookmarked. I'm just itching to try them!|
On my hit list:
Peach Oats Brûlée
Asparagus with Red Pepper Sauce
Orrechiette with Butter Beans
Black Bean & Sweet Potato Hash
French Chocolate Almond Cake
Thai Black Rice Pudding
And that's just a small percentage of what I have bookmarked! Vegetarian or not, this cookbook is worth your attention.
